How did April fly by so fast? It is already time to share how I did with my goals for April.
My first goal was to sew a flimsy. I already had the pieces cut, and I am happy to say that I was able to sew this together:
It still needs borders, and some applique, but I reached the goal for the month.
If you would like to see the pattern (Butterfly Garden) click on the link above. It will take you to my April goals where I share where to find the pattern.
My next goal for April was to find a pattern and cut the fabric for a new peg (clothespin) bag. I went down the rabbit hole (Pinterest) for ideas and I have the fabric cut. I have a photo, but it isn’t much to look at, since I haven’t finished the bag.
The hanger is child-size, and is lying underneath what will be the top of the bag. The fabric under the hanger is the lining for the bag, and you are looking at the wrong side of it.
I am not sharing a pattern, since, after looking at several on Pinterest, I am going with my own thing. We will see how it turns out.
Goal 3 was to sew my three blocks for the RSC18 Squared Away Scrap Sampler. I finished the blocks and posted about them here.
I am happy, happy, happy with Goal #4! I not only made progress with quilting the Friendship Row by Row quilt, but I finished the quilting! Woohoo!
I don’t have close-up photos of the quilting, but, believe me, you don’t want to see them. This is the very first time that I have machine quilted with a frame. Let’s just say that it was a huge learning experience!
It still needs binding. Maybe that will be next month’s goal.
If you’d like to read the brief history of this quilt, I blogged about it here. That was a year ago! Time flies!
Between sewing and the job, I am also gardening. I haven’t accomplished as much outside as I would have liked, but it has been glorious enjoying the sunshine and seeing the promise of spring blooming.
